Friedrich Nietzsche’s work rocked the foundation of Western thinking and continues to permeate our culture, high and low – yet he is one of history’s most misunderstood philosophers.

I Am Dynamite! is the essential biography for anyone seeking to understand Nietzsche, the philosopher who foresaw – and sought solutions to – our own troubled times.
